PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, HP killed its webOS devices unit. Over the weekend, the company slashed the prices on the TouchPad. The result? The TouchPad sold out completely in a matter of hours. This confirms what I've been hearing from friends and family: "I'd love a tablet, but I'm not paying laptop money for one."

It's actually the fastest selling consumer product in the history of man kind.


I doubt that. Remember - the iPad is actually TWO products. The Nokia 1100 alone sold 200 million units in five years - that's 40 million *per year*, compared to your combined iPad1/2 sales of, like, 25-30 million in 18 months.
